Meeting #6 – 3 September 2009, Thursday
Theme : “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough!!!”
Word of the Day : Climb
TME : Jason Tan
He’s dashing, suave, handsome, charming and tall. Yes, that’s our TME for last Thursday’s meeting – Jason Tan. I don’t usually compliment guys but Jason is indeed good looking. Not only is he good looking, he also has good command of English language, soft-spoken, polite, helpful, friendly, etc etc. He has got many “secret admirers” in our club. At least I know one of our Excos is one of them. =)
